now for today's market update. stocks turn in their worst performance of the year so far. after posting such strong gains for the month of january. on wall street the dow lost 129-points to fall below 14- thousand. falling technology stocks cost the nasdaq 47-points. and the s-and-p-500 lost 17- points to fall below 15- hundred. the super bowl is the world's biggest stage for advertisers. but what happens when a home soda-maker tries to go head- to-head with the major drink
companies? their commercial doesn't get on! alison kosik explains. soda-stream learned the hard way: the super bowl is not the place to take on coke and pepsi. the company - which lets consumers make their own carbonated drinks at home, using less plastic in the process - says c-b-s rejected its ad for sunday's big game. soda stream claims the network threw a red-light on its commercial, for directly attacking coca-cola and pepsi-co. the commercial depicted delivery men from both companies in such a rush to get their product to stores, their bottles explode. "with soda stream, we could've saved 500 million bottles on game day alone." pepsi was the sponsor of the super bowl's halftime show. and along with coke - ran multiple spots during the game itself. soda-stream c-e-o daniel birnbaum said, "our ad confronts the beverage industry and its arguably outdated business model. one day we will look back on plastic soda bottles the way we now view cigarettes." the company instead posted the commercial on its website. it's certainly not the first time an ad has been rejected. bud light, go-daddy, and durex have all had to come up with lighter versions in the past.
but it doesn't mean the company's initial creative work was in vain. as of mid-day monday, soda- stream's rejected ad has 4 million views on youtube. i'm alison kosik in new york. take a look at this amazing shot! with the score tied and only seconds on the clock a high school point guard stumbled and fell. but not before launching a half-court shot. he made it just at the buzzer-- winning the game for his team. everyone in the gym went wild! >> when this dramatic fire broke out in minnesota over the weekend-- fire fighters were ready. grandstands at a county fairground were intentionally torched. fire fighters knock down the flames as part of a training exercise. the grandstands were condemned and burning them down saved 30- thousand dollars in demolition and removal costs. not everyone was watching the super bowl on sunday. take a look at this! the puppy bowl took over animal planet. the network bills the annual event as the "ruffest" game on four legs. players are all between 8 and 12 weeks old and come from animal shelters across the country. they romp around a huge pen made to look like a football field filled with chew toys!
